Temporal range: Early Cretaceous,
Notochelone is an extinct genus of sea turtle, which existed about 100 million years ago. The species was first described by Richard Lydekker in 1889. It was the most common marine reptile living in the inlands of the sea around Queensland, Australia. It was a small turtle, and was about the same size as the modern green turtle. Analytical studies have indicated that the creatures frequently ate benthic molluscs.
